Registration and Tuition
We make every effort to keep tuition at an affordable level. We are blessed with excellent stewards of the school’s resources including those who manage the RCS Endowment Fund which assists parents each year with a sizable payout that goes directly towards offsetting tuition for all families. We understand that Christian education is a financial sacrifice for every family and we are committed to doing everything that we can to help those who make the decision to entrust us with the education of their children.
RCS charges an annual, per family, non-refundable registration fee. The registration fee should accompany each registration for admission.
If received before May 15 the registration fee is $75 per family.
If received between May 15 and June 15 the registration fee is $125 per family.
If received after June 15 the registration fee is $175 per family.
For academic reasons, we usually do not accept registration for the current school year after the second semester of that year has passed, but we would be happy to discuss options with you at any time.
RCS is happy to offer discounts to families who enroll multiple students. The most recent tuition information can be found by accessing our Tuition Schedule. Discounts are also provided for members of all supporting churches. Please contact the school to find out how your church can become a supporting church of RCS.
Tuition can be paid in one of three ways
A one-time (discounted) lump sum payment due in June.
A nine-month installment plan with the first payment beginning in September.
A twelve-month installment plan with the first payment beginning in June.
We are happy to offer a variety of options for families considering RCS who are in need of some level of financial aid.
